This is a no frills park, but it suited our needs just fine. There are no amenities (showers, restrooms, laundry, pool) but the location in the small town of Aztec, about a half mile from the Aztec Ruins National Monument, was perfect. The sites are spacious and there are lots of trees and grass. The parking pads are on gravel and mostly level. About half the park has permanent RVs with well maintained spaces. Aztec is about 10 miles from Farmington, NM, a much larger community with all the big city amenities one would need. We only paid $20 a night for a space. Even though we stayed for a week, the price was still $20 a night. We aren't complaining. We have paid more than that for a state park campsite with no water or sewer. There was no picnic table or fire pit, but again, we didn't need them. Wish we would have had a site with one of the huge trees, but we were on the end of a row and had full sun in the mid-to-late afternoon, which chased us inside. Until that time, we had enough shade from the trailer and awnings to be able to be outside. The wifi was excellent all week, although it would get sluggish in the early evening when people were getting home from work. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

As a dining suggestion, you might want to try the 3 Rivers Tap House (brewery) in historic downtown Farmington. Located in the old drug store, the eclectic decor pays homage to old Farmington with great signs, old catalog pages and stuff from the drug store. The beer was good and cold, the food tasty and the prices reasonable.

This is a small park with no amenities. There are no restrooms, showers, or laundry. Mostly permanent residents with clean and tidy sites. The park is quiet, away from any traffic noise. Very friendly staff. The office is also a residence, so make sure you knock on the door. We had a reservation and the check in was fast and efficient. They do not accept credit cards. I wrote a check. Easy to maneuver roads and sites for a big rig. Roads and sites are gravel. No picnic table and the sewer cover was missing at my site. Some sites have shade, but most are in full sun. Only a couple of blocks from Aztec Ruins. Excellent wifi. Nice dog walking area near the office. It's a basic park, but good value. I would stay here again. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Plan on trying Thai restaurant mentioned in previous review.

Great RV park to stay in while visiting Chaco Culture Natl Monument, Aztec Ruins, Angel Peak Scenic Area and other four corners sites.

Quiet. Dark skies at night was wonderful. Best value of all parks we have had in NM, TX, AZ and Co. Level spots and easy to pull into with 41' toy hauler. Service and friendliness could not be better. Our #1 choice. This rv park makes me think about moving to Aztec. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good location, near the ruins. Certainly nothing fancy about this park but it is economical. Sites are flat and pull through. Only will take cash or check as payment. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The price quoted was for full-hookups. This is not a fancy park and most of the residents are permanent, but it's very close to the Aztec Ruins and museum, and the price is right. If you're up to it, you can even walk to the Ruins, but there is plenty of room in their parking lot for your rig if you prefer. If not for the ruins, I don't know that I'd stay here again.

This RV park is a little gem for those that don't need the park to provide showers or restrooms. The RV park is located on the Animas river, we caught trout right at the park. The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and easy to work with. The $20 per night with full hookups can't be beat. The park is very Dog Friendly with a large, well watered, grassy area. Picnic tables for each site is the only improvement we would recommend. The parks location is central (within 75 miles) to many points of interest. We stayed 3 weeks in a 43' rig and would stay here again. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nothing fancy. Park is clean and well maintained. Some full timers, but we were able to get a pull thru large enough for MH and toad. Had a little trouble keeping 30 amps going, but worked long enough to get MH cool. We would stay here again. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very basic park located on the banks on the Animas River. Leave your RV window open at night and hear water flowing. There is little traffic noise. All utilities worked well. The park does not accept credit cards. Most residents are work campers. There were no problems with the long-term residents. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Perhaps the best RV park in the Farmington area. A bit rustic but neat and quiet. Many permanent RVrs. Some side by side hookups. Outstanding WiFi. No cable but good HD ota tv w/main networks and open enough for satellite dishes. Owners friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This small park doesn't have any amenities, but it is clean, well-managed, and quiet. Sites are level, gravel, and long enough for our 40' RV with or without the tow attached. You must be self-contained to stay here. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park can serve as your base for visiting Aztec Ruins National Monument and Chaco Culture National Historic Park. Aztec Ruins is within walking distance. It is about 30-45 minutes south to the turnoff for Chaco. The road is dirt and can be very rough for larger rigs.

Easy in and out. Long sites. Full hookups worked well. Stone roads and sites so no dust. Nice, helpful owner. Walking distance to ruins. Close to food. Wifi was fast when it worked. 4G Verizon. Very good experience. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a bare-bones park, but a pretty nice one. There are no restrooms, showers, or laundry. That is fine with us as we do not use these facilities anyway and prefer to not have to pay for them. The park is run out of the owner's home. Reservations and check-in were easy and pleasant. They do not take credit cards, but do take personal checks. The location is good for visiting the area and the price is certainly right. There is some road noise but not bad. Many of the sites are occupied by long term residents, but everything was neat and tidy and everyone was very nice and helpful. The spaces are fairly large and well-spaced. We could not get their WiFi to work, but we had strong Verizon signal and data. We were parked under one of the few trees, so had to use our portable dish rather than the one on the top of our motorhome. We would certainly stay here again if visiting the area.

Good central location for Aztec Ruins National Monument, Chaco Canyon, Durango and the San Juan River. Cell phone service here is good but WiFi was very "iffy" - network was up and down constantly. The Animas River borders the property and is a nice area to walk our dog. The owners of the park were friendly and escort you to your site. They do not have the spacious sites you might find in other parks but that is reflected in the price. Overall this was a very comfortable place to stay while fishing the San Juan River. We camped at Ruins Road RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
